Laura - South Lincolnshire

I am a mum to four children and have always had a love for reading and stories. The Story Pot is giving me access to beautiful books that I can share with my own children as well as with the local community. I love doing craft activities inspired by the stories from The Story Pot.

Ruth - Berkshire

Hi I'm Ruth. I'm a storyteller and former children's librarian. I am passionate about children's books and stories and believe that every child should be able to read and hear stories which reflect their lives and the beautiful diverse world around we all live in. Stories should hold positive, affirming messages to encourage self belief, living in cooperation and peace with others, encourage imagination and creativity. The titles that feature in The Story Pot reflect this and there are so many wonderful titles that I can't wait to share them with you!

I live in Berkshire and when I'm not storytelling love to doodle, sing, play the piano and spend time in nature. Not all at the same time!


Lauren - Derbyshire

Kerri - Peterborough

My Mum says that I always had a book in my hand, even before I could walk.
I’m a true believe in the Dr Seuss quote; ‘The more you read, the more things you will know. The more you learn, the more places you’ll go’
I’m a passionate reader and early years educator, and now that I have my own young family, I want to continue inspiring children and young people with the world of books and reading.
I’ve been a customer of the Story Pot for a couple of years; I love the quality and uniqueness of the books that we sell, and I can’t wait to share them with you!
